Little Train Show fundraiser rail treat for youngsters

Big money was raised by small trains in Dunedin on the weekend.

Dunedin Model Railway Club president Noel Wilson said the two-day model train show had nine exhibits. Miniature train enthusiasts had come from as far away as Christchurch.

The exhibits transfixed children as the trains whistled and hissed around the tracks at Bayfield High School.

Last year, the club raised $10,000 for a hospital bed for the oncology department at Dunedin Hospital and it was hoped this weekend's event would raise the same amount for the department, Mr Wilson said.

The amount raised this year would not be known until Tuesday, he said.
